, but for those who make a million dollars or more. making the investments in education, making the investments in research, and we make those investments together and build a future. that is what it will take over the long run to build a stronger future here in western massachusetts, all across the commonwealth, and all across the country. >> thank you. before i start, i want to thank the mayor for your endorsement and support. thank you both for coming. this is actually about jobs and economy. the whole race is about that. we held one of our first jobs fares here because we want to connect people with jobs. when you put a title on a bill in washington that says jobs bill, you have to read the bill. those bills in particular were rejected in a bipartisan manner, and that means democrats and republicans recognize that by taking for under $50 billion in taxes out of the private sector and giving it to washington to increase government spending, that is not the answer. the best answer is to come and put the money in the communities. i went down there today and he did not say, thank you for coming

has got better jobs plan, and better record, and a better budget plan, a better education plan, at a better health care plan than governor romney. if you listen to all the debates, the republican arguments come down to the. -- to this. we left him a terrible mess and in 4 years he did not fix it. we have finally discovered that middle-class people are having a hard time. put us back again. we will do the same thing we did before. that is basically the argument. look at this. i hope i have earned some credibility with you. [cheers and applause] on jobs and budgets. do you believe our country works better when we are all together or when your on your own? do you believe our economy works better when we share prosperity in response ability or whether we just keep the money at the top and help it trickles down? -- hope it trickles down? do you believe our policies are better when we make them based on evidence or extremist ideology? do you believe our budget are better women for them based on an arithmetic or illusion? barack obama as a senator ran for president for nearly two year
challenges of the week. i'm honored to be here, your appreciation for the penn state and higher education. we need your continued engagement. again, thank you for joining us. thank you for bringing along the penn state cookies. [laughter] according to google news, there's over 45,000 stories about penn state and sandusky. you've written them. you've read them. i imagine that most of you have formed an opinion about penn state and our actions over the last year. beyond the headlines, there's another reality, one that exists for penn state's 96,000 students, 44,000 full and part-time faculty and staff, and over 550,000 living alumni. it's a world of teaching, research, and service. it's a world with an $800 million research program, hundreds of degrees offered, 24 campuses, online world campus, academic health center, a law school, and 157 years of tradition. it's also a world that has continued to face ongoing controversies surrounding jerry sandusky, our board of trustees, current and former administrators, and me. the legal process continues to unfold as evidence by the attorney generals fur
have lots of water. there is any number of issues, whether it is around energy or education. this strikes me as a way to get around the challenge of government is dysfunctional and compartmentalize. you have a lot here. it seems like this might be part of the solution. >> before i comment about that, i want to be sure that we do not forget those have been unemployed so long they are out of the workforce. real question will skill readiness. i do not want to forget them in the equation. it is music my ears to hear the definition of the problem and information. it is music to my ears to hear that. we have a piecemeal approach of a couple of initiatives. they're really attract well to analyze and a city that is depopulating. you're trying to talk about redefining wealth. i think of the outbidding the police cars with the cameras, everybody has done that i think. both of those were seeded with grant money. when the grant ran out, we have not been able to keep up. there needs to be that money, whether it be federal or state. there needs to be this institutional approach that redef
legitimate and getting an education and making sure that your relationships, people were legitimately married. anything that pointed back words or made you illegitimate was not really something they wanted to talk about and have out there. it is too bad because it closed a lot of doors in our family and that is what you found in michele obama's family. very fortunate, you were able to help and truly open those doors for her family. >> at least with been -- within her family, there are those conversations happening. as i said americans, ordinary americans across the country are making these discoveries with dna testing so these conversations are happening around the country. when you talk about marriage and the importance of legitimacy, one of the other stories which talks about the variations of the american experience during slavery was the first lady's family had ancestors who were freed for decades before the civil war and one of the most interesting records i came across was a record which showed those members of her family who after the civil war went to the courthouse and lined up to ge
, and herman cain with the mission to educate the public on issues facing us today. john: that government doesn't always make life better? >> that government has to get out of the way, or this economy and this country's going down the tubes. john: the chicken ad, you know, people say it's ridiculous, this is low budget. it's silly. it's beneath the importance of politics, and, yet, on super tuesday -- >> one of the most viewed youtube videos out there, just like the smoking ad. john: got more hitshan all the other guys running their commercials. >> combined, yes. john: the girl who says "any questions" is the director's daughter. >> yes. john: this director works for other people in addition to the smoking man ad. one is a c congressial candidate running in california against nancy pelosi -- good luck to him -- immediate -- med ya was not giving him attention. >> strangling job creation, burying us under a mountain of debt. >> do you want 500 americans to lose their jobs? are you serious? >> i am. john dennis, and i approve this message. john: he's the candidate, but, really, zombies. argue the
-centric for something in the future. to me, both of those reasons focus on this time of investing in education and development of future capabilities, tactics, techniques, and procedures. we have to invest in that going forward. >> could i do a short follow-up? what does that approach imply for the army civilians and contractors? do they become diminished? >> they might in terms of numbers, but it will still play a role. >> and how do you incorporate the planning of what those numbers need to be, particularly on the contractor side? >> you want to have the right balance. again, contractors provide us with its unique capabilities that we simply do not have. that is what they will focus on. we have department of army civilians that will provide continuity and consistency that we need. then you need our military members in order to provide us with experience, expertise, and frankly sometimes, just the validity of what we are trying to do based on their experiences. that is where and try to capture the right mix. right now, it is overbalanced toward contractors and civilians. i'm trying to rebalan
. it is the highest income region. it has people with the highest educational level and the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if you go down to tidewater and hampton roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is a white-collar and blue- collar and has a large african- american population. it also has a relatively low nativity rape, people there were not necessarily born in virginia. the navy brings in many people from across the nation and the world. the richmond area as an urban area but it is probably the most conservative urban region in this area. it might be one of the most conservative and the country. it is a traditional area particularly because the west side of richmond -- the east side is heavily african-american and the west side is predominantly white and conservative and has a high negativity rate. some of the counties have become more diverse but by and large, it is also a conservative area. you can include far southwest virginia as a world unto itself. it used to beat republican but mountain valley republican, more liberal republican and now -- and then
, better education plan, than his opponent, gov. romney. if you listen to all those debates -- the republican argument comes down to, we left him a terrible mess, and in four years he didn't fix it. we discovered middle class people are having a hard time. so take him out and put ius back in and we'll do what we did before on steriods. that is the argument. let's loo ak at this. i hope i've earned some credibility with you. on jobs and budgets. first thing we have to decide is, do you believe the country works better when we're all in this together or when you're on your own. do you believe the economy works better with shared responsibility or we give all the money to the top and hope it trickles down? or that our policies are better based on evidence or extremeist idiology. onwhe nwe base them oour budges illusion?tic or first of all, let's start with the facts. obama ran for president for two years, including the secretary of state and joe biden. they all thought what they were doing was offering specific solutions. to change the courst of a weak economy. before the meltd
taken jobs and they're not using their educational background or their training. the food stamp number show how tough the economy is. 17% on food stamps. i'm glad we have unemployment programs and food stamp programs and i'm glad we have a number of companies that have come to delaware. we have not done enough. we have to much burdensome regulation. we still raised taxes during this recession which we drove back. personal income tax and we need to create a stable business environment. we have not done a good enough job creating that environment and that is borne out by the numbers. >> where do you stand on your blueprint for delaware? >> we have implemented the majority of items in their and we have more to go. some of them we did not have the resources. i said we ought to create a delaware version of a cops bill. we have made progress there as well. it is not spin to the hundreds of workers were back at the refinery. it is not spin to the people who decided to expand in delaware. it is not spin to the folks at foxfire printing who are adding dozens of jobs. it is not spin to the peopl
and jobs. we have a large energy sector. education is a big issue. among the latino population and especially democrats, immigration reform. host: the demographics of the voters in colorado? guest: 52% women, 40% men. we have increased the number of people were voting by mail. 800,000 people have already cast ballots in this state. it is equally divided. one-third of the electorate is a registered republican, won third democrat, one-third unaffiliated. everyone is plan for the group of unaffiliated voters. you'll hear a lot about appealing to women and latinos. we have heard a lot about the bennett strategy and that is the strategy center michael bennett used in running against the tide in 2010. where by appealing to women and latinos he was able to pull a victory in a year or not favorable to democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic areas of the state? guest: denver is ground zero for democrats. boulder would be another. they have large registration bases in arapahoe m jefferson county. surprisingly, the fifth biggest county for democratic voter registration is
't know -- maybe you can answer, maybe you can give me some sort of education on this. but for the most part, i mean, naturally animals in the wild do they naturally go after their own sex to reproduce? i don't think so. age sex is -- >> let me answer the caller in very direct terms. sex orientation is a characteristic of being human. i think put more simply, i was born this way no different than straight americans were born straight. one of the questions that i always like to ask people when we're having this conversation is when did you choose to be straight? people think about that for three or four seconds and they're like well i didn't choose to be straight, i was born this way. well the same applies to me. i can assure you that nothing happened. i didn't really have a conversation with myself and decide to be gay. god made me this way and i'm very proud of that. and so to the extent that we understand that the caller was born straight and i was born gay and we're able to kind of get over that understanding, then i think we come to an easy conclusion that we both deserve to be trea
, , because i might not be able to take care of you," that is important to a senior citizen. on education, people need to really dig and find out what the educational programs are all about. it is more money and more money. it is all for the unions. if there were things going on in the school that the parents could see, instead of being pushed aside because the government wants to take over the children, and not let the parents have anything to say -- there are other subjects as well as the middle-class. host: will give you a chance to respond to some of her comments. guest: i think she is right. all the voters should have an opportunity to look behind the ads and build into the research on the individual candidates. they should come out knowing this country needs a change in direction, and who will create the number of jobs that are necessary. i think governor mitt romney has that program, if you look at it in depth. his commitment to produce 12 million jobs over the next four years, the way this country has to do. also, to take regulation out of the small business community, so that our
has to appeal to the swing areas. more independent voters. and you had this educated, affluent group, the base around ohio state university. and that has been critical. in the end, if you show that map, ohio is broken up, we have said it for years into 5 ohios. those five areas, plus some of the border areas, we have about seven media markets. it makes a very expensive to campaign here. in gubernatorial races and some presidential races there will go to west virginia to reach the southern ohio parts. that is where the bigger market is and that has to be part of the mix, too. ohio is five ohios. host: we talked about the issues, the top issues in ohio in this election cycle -- can we talk about the issues? guest: this is like to been a shock to your viewers, but the auto issue has been huge here. i have never seen where one issue in the campaign can play so well here. obviously, it is the battle of the bailout. who wanted to take it into bankruptcy. who got hurt, who did not. you are seeing the new ones being played on. and you are seeing the big swing, which is on the president's sid
vote idea. here is a way of spending -- let's get rid of elections and get rid of having educated citizens who are educated every two and four years. wouldn't it be easier if we had no money in politics, no elections, no vote counting. >> wait a second. the point here is actually -- i know -- i'm saying if we are worried about the expensive campaigns, i think running the popular vote election is more expensive. >> we have to do more than reforms as well. it's why the people who are push thg are saying yes, we need money out and people in. we need a full democracy. it's one part of it. i don't think it's sufficient. >> how is making every vote count going to cause more money to be raised? >> hold that thought. you can think about this. you can't think about the way it will impact the policy positions the candidates take. i think that might be interesting. we'll be back with more after this. that can only come from having someone else pay your mortgage for an entire year... this is what you'll experience if you win the quicken loans skip-a-year mortgage sweepstakes. up to five winne
educational levels in the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if you go down to and tidewater, roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is both white-collar and blue-collar, also has a large african-american population. and it also has a relatively low nativity rate, that is people not necessarily born in virginia, due to the influence of the navy. the navy brings lots of people in from across the nation and across the world. the richmond area is an urban area, but it's probably the most conservative urban region in this area and maybe one of the most conservative in the country. of course, is a traditional area, particularly because of the west side of richmond, the city of richmond, the east side is heavily african-american and the west side is predominately white and his conservative with a high nativity rate. some of the surrounding counties have become more diverse over the years, but by and large it is also a conservative suburban ex-urban area. those are three. you may include far south virginia and a world unto itself. it used to be substantial
the race to the top is not a good policy for education for one candidate. we have been working with the administration to try to get them more aware of the issues that are out there. it is critically important every time america against -- gets left off. other countries have a carbon tax. we do not, and that is the problem. there has been debate. it has been thrown against the wall. let's hope it sticks. let's talk about what we have done, less than in decades. we are becoming more energy dependent. natural gas is cheaper than cool. that is good for folks. energy is sheet. that is good for the consumers. the obama administration needs more from rural america. it is an educational paul -- process, and let's put it like that. >> we do not have an energy policy. we have an environmental policy. we need to work on alternatives like wind and solar and biomass. we need to talk about conservation, and we need to reach our next generation of energy production. the president does not have an energy policy. >> it is time to take our first break. you are watching the 2012 montana debate.
to not necessarily covering beats but covering narrative's. rather than just putting one person on education to try to double that entire fire house that comes at him, -- fire hose that comes at them, they can add narratives and subtract them, make sure people are involved. if they are not enrolled in those neighbor -- narratives, something will play out without their impact. >> a follow-up question -- i am not thinking of any city in particular here. with that kind of operation, let's say you have that operation in a city where the daily newspaper in town started to do some very strange things. i imagine that. it was owned by somebody who was very openly talking they were going to support particular causes, particular developments, particular parties. i imagine something like that could happen. does that add to the obligation of citizens, people like you, to do more to fill that void? or can you still -- fill the void -- is that city just out of luck? >> first of all, it is a remarkable symbol of what is happening to journalism. locally, the owners of the "union tribune" just purchased the "north
provided by the department of education have be sent to all 26 public housing developments in zone a, they're available to take the 45,000 residents in these areas to designated shelters, flyers have been posted in one of these developments and staff is knocking on doors to alert residence about the mandatory evacuations. the nypd is making voumts in those developments and throughout zone a and loud speakers in some of the squad cars. residents can also call 311 to find out where to get busses and to get help with those evacuations. 7:00 p.m., all elevators in those 26 developments will be shut off. heat and hot water will also be shut off. so if you live in one of those developments it's imperative that that you get to a safe location out of zone a before that time. all school based after school programs are closed tomorrow as well. as are most other after school programs. let me give you some other updates on city operations. the department of homeless services has enhanced street outreach to encourage people on the street to seek shelter. street outreach will continue during the -- city
that nomenclature. they educate people about issues, policy options, things like that, but they are a lot to do some political action. it cannot be primarily what they are about, but with these court decisions in 2010, they are able to be much more aggressive and specific in the way they are involved in politics. they can run advertising on television and do other things that advocate an election or the defeat of a candidate. because they are mainly about educating people and not mainly about elections, they have been able to do that without disclosing the sources of the money they have got. hundreds of millions of dollars being spent this year without us knowing very much about where it came from. host: eric is with us from cedar town, georgia. caller: what i would like to say about this money, it is basically generations of money that a lot of elderly what people have built up over time. now they have come out and decided to buy an election. it is not taxed or nothing. they need to start taxing this money. if the rich people do not want to pay more taxes, the one to take the tax money they are sav
educate or the number of women hospitals must deliver maternity services to. not to mention rhode island has tuition for undock meanted people. is this a drain on our economy? let's start with you mr. doherty. >> sit a drain on the local economy? yes, it is. but we need comprehensive immigration reform. we've been talking about that for years. this administration said they would do that four years ago and it hasn't been done. just a political employ just a few months ago this administration put through their version of the dream act which doesn't make sense to me because it would leave some family members out and some would be safe. so we need comprehensive immigration reform. i just talked about some drug cases. in my career i focused on people who were here unlawfulfully who had committed crimes. that's a whole separate issue. in my view if someone is in this country illegally and they've committed a felony they should be deported immediately. and to that point, there is what's called an illegal reentry and this happens quite often where someone is arrested then they find the law enfor
. if it is the communitycollege -- thos kids can get an education on the china currency bill. the biggest jobs bill to pass the senate -- josh mandel doesn't support this. and the auto rescue. the contrast is this clear. mandel supports tax cuts for the richest people, in the hopes some trickles down, and i support focusing on the middle class, and community colleges, auto rescue. >> that concludes our debate. i want to thank our candidates. with the two candidats and the aarp. thank you for watching and listening. your job is not done. you have until nov. 6 to cast your vote. i am chuck todd with nbc news. goodnight. >> we have more campaign 2012 .ebate coming up ver see some of a to the damage due to hurricane sandy. crews are restoring power to the hundreds of thousands affected by the storm. there are downed trees and flooded roads that are still a part of the problem. there's still no word yet on a new address tomorrow. we're told that the metric system will be back in business -- the metro system will be back in business early this afternoon, around 2:00 p.m. for now, the president has set aside the
into good government. what we need in maine and in america is to invest in education, infrastructure, to reform our taxes, to reduce our spending, and to get this economy on track so the government can provide an environment for small businesses to grow and prosper and to help families get through this economy. the disparity in income is the biggest problem. what might two major opponents offer is more of the same. >> we have some business owners. does anyone want to answer? >> i am not a small business owner. i never said i was. i am self-employed. i am a free-lance writer. if you are a political pundits like i am, if you run for senate, you are no longer a political pundit. not only have i not created a job, but i cost myself a job by running for office. on that question, i do not have a good record. >> i think it is sad the recently we have looked at government services as being separate from competency. the u.s. senate is a job. it is a complex job. legal issues, economic issues, financial issues. i own six businesses. everyone here in maine and across the country talks about job
-- education is important. guest: coal is important -- guest: taking down on how often i am interrupted. health care -- 1.2 million medicare recipients here in virginia now have eight additional years on medicare with extended medicare for another eight years. a healthy system. 63,000 young virginians have access to health care up to the age of 26. seniors now have access to preventive health care services, which is far cheaper treating it up front and an emergency room. we extended what governor romney did in massachusetts and did it nationwide and virginians have experienced improved health care and access because of that. education -- the president has been working on higher education higherpell grant access. -- higher education, grant access. a young woman told me i am not a democrat or republican, but i am supporting president obama because i am attending a local community college on a pell grant and president obama who doubled the size of pell grants so all of americans have access to higher education. if you look at the unemployment rate, if you have a bachelor's degree, 4%, associate's
for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >>> good morning. dress for breezy, chilly weather. sprinkles showing up in the areas in green, north-northeast and north-northwest. they will continue to move to the east. highs mid-50s. tomorrow, we'll have still a bit of a blustery wind. chilly into the weekend. >>> 7:30 now on a thursday morning. november 1st, 2012. we're looking at some of the scenes of people trying to commute into new york city. doesn't look too bad right there. but there have been major traffic backups. new system in ef
schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. now, thaa test drive.ll silverado! the most dependable, longest lasting, full-size pickups on the road. so, what do you think? [ engine revs ] i'll take it. [ male announcer ] it's chevy truck month. just announced additional $750 bonus cash on a 2012 chevy silverado all-star. trade up to get a total value of $8,750. bonus cash ends october 31st. >>> live pictures now, ocean city, mad, you have been seeing our sandra endo there. look at the surf coming in. that's just the beginning here. i want to bring you back inside and show you what we're doing and the information we're doing. bring this camera in here. let me show you. this is a run down, this is where i get the information. we're going by that somewhat as the information comes in. i have been told i may have been given this -- may have given this short shrift. president obama declared a state of emergency in new york prior to the arrival of hurricane. i have been told
cases for local government are best partners at fighting poverty, improving education, that kind of stuff. >> governor walker, for you as well, the defining issue that determines the outcome in your state? >> well it's certainly about jobs. in our case it's elections are fundamentally about the future and not about the past. so i think people on the few weeks back on that night in denver and john's state outside of his hometown there when voters got to see that mitt romney had a plan and the president didn't. and now in the last few days, he's trying to gloss that over with a 20-page glossy document. he doesn't have a plan, mitt romney does. in fact just yesterday as i was traveling the state, there were literally farmers out in fields that had almost like a burma shave commercial. they had one sign after another after another that listed out the five points of his plan. people want to know how they're going to get working in janesville or green bay or wausau or milwaukee or superior. they want to know how we're going to get working again. i think it was clear after the debate. w
legacythere is a little girl who has never heard his name who has . enough to eat and is getting an education. that's his legacy. and it is up to us to each and every one of us to carry that legacy forward. we love you senator. [applause] i'm garry heart of colorado. [applause] nations even great nations sometimes require a voice of conscience. george mcgovern was the voice of conscience for our nation in our time. the voice of conscience began with israel with it's profits call israel back to their purpose and cause. in america george mcgovern stood in the tradition of henry david author row of william brian and more recently of robert kennedy and of martin luther king. when the wounded veteran in vietnam needed a voice he was there. when the hungry child in american poverty needed a voice, he was there. when women, minorities and young people sought to breakdown the barriers of a closed political system, his voice was there. when sinister voices corrupted the political system and haunted the corridors of power in washington, he was there to warn us. voices of conscience make us uncomfortabl
an all-in strategy and invest in training and education and leave the congress on both sides. we're going to do this, but i'm going to take the weight. if there are tough decisions, blame them on me. that is what executive leadership is about. that is what the president is determined to do after the election. he has sort of hinted about it. i would talk about it. governor romney, who is a problem solver, he would be inclined to do the same thing. people respond to leadership. the paralysis that you see just needs a good idea, and figs in the debt is a great idea. have a little tough leadership. if we can get both components, we can get things done. >> i want to throw out a couple of datapoint. the generation gap is significant. senior turnout is much greater. they're much more enthusiastic than they were four years ago. voting among seniors could be a very significant impact on the outcome of the campaigns. second, when you talk about leadership and where the voters are, one of the common complaint in this town are -- is that voters are the problem. they will not accept any cuts. that is
't ticket. is that history. it's more entertaining than is educational. it's one thing that genre can add to actual history. >> what is your day job? >> i teach at george washington university. >> talking here with thomas mallon. >>> now book tv, joan walsh presenter falls on the state of the american middle class and what should be done to ensure future opportunities for all americans. this is just over an hour. >> that's my favorite part. [laughter] good evening and welcome to today's meeting of the commonwealth of california. the place where you are in the know. i am dug sovereign political reporter at kcbs radio in san francisco and i will be a moderator for this evening's program. please insure your cell phone, pda and other noisemaking devices are turned off for at least on silence. and we will get underway in just a moment. first i'd like to tell you about some upcoming programs. this thursday, september 27, melanie, financial commentator for abc's good morning america, and paul schott stevens who is the ceo of the investment company institute will team up to discuss the future of
schools shouldn't be 47th in anything. proposition 38 bypasses sacramento, and makes education a real priority- with the funding, to our local schools and the accountability from our local schools... that we'll need to improve student learning in every classroom. so we can stay 47th... or we can choose proposition 38. i'm voting yes on 38... because it makes our children #1. >>> i want to thank all the federal teand local teams in place. i'm confident that we're ready. but i think the public needs to prepare for the fact this is going to take a long time for us to clean up. the good news is we will clean up and we will get through this. >> what about the impact on the election, sir? >> i'm not worried that the point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. right now, our number one priority is to to make sure that we are saving lives that are search and rescue teams will be in pla
governor here knows something about that. he's the national leader in education and he did some things i've copied in my plan for the nation. number one he makes sure schools are evaluated so you know how well a school is doing. they get graded. he makes sure the parents are able to send a child to a school of their choice. federalg to take dollars and instead of giving them to the schools i'm going to have them follow the student so parents can choose the school. number four doesn't sound to a lot of people like it has a lot to do with jobs but it does. it relates to debt and deficits which and that is if you're an entrepreneur thinking of risking your live ever life savings to start a business or build a factory, if you think america is on the road to greece or italy or spain, you're less likely to invest in america. and right now we spend a trillion more than we take in. it's bad for the economy. i think it's immoral for us to pass on debt like that to our kids and i will get america on track to a balanced budget. [applause] and number five, is to be a champion of small business, help
solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare and education and that is why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. e. republican congressman robert dold and democratic challenger brad schneider are in a tight race for the tenth congressional district. it covers an area along part of michigan in the northern chicago severs. representative dold is running for a second term and brad schneider is the founder of the management controlling firm. the two candidates recently sat down for a debate, courtesy of chicago's wttw tv. >> the tenth congressional district has one of the most expensive congressional races in the country. as democrats try to take control for the first time in more than three years. they are aided by the recent remap of the district which makes it the most democratic congressional district in the country held by republican. the newly drawn tenth congressional district runs along made lake michigan and the wisconsin border and includes northern suburbs such as waukegan buffalo
at what was covered thoroughly. one of them was education, and at one point the president but did meehan said -- looked at me and said we have not discussed education at all, and i said in my head, sorry, he spent the first 20 minutes of the first debate talking about education. we knew -- remember, the first questions all came from the town hall, so i could not just come off with a question that was not represented in their questions. we knew that syria, iran and israel would be thoroughly covered. we didn't feel the need to fill the hole. >> but immigration and gun control might not. >> it might not. >> you would assume that would be the last chance. >> how do you prepare assume each of you have an individual method. >> i make myself insane. i shut myself off in the house with a lot of cards, read books the candidates have written, stump speeches, right about 100 questions, knowing that i might get about 20 in, and i do not think i got that many then i rehearsed. -- many. then i rehearse. then, after all of the, you have to stop. you have to know it well enough that you can't stand to
... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve it's my coffee when i want it. you press a button, you have great dunkin' coffee. i got my coffee for the morning, i got my dunkin' k-cup packs for the rest of the day. only available at dunkin' donuts restaurants. america runs on dunkin' coffee. we had a good group of people. good group of employees out there. this was a booming place. and mitt romney and bain capital turned it in to a junk yard. i was suddenly, 60 years old. i had no heal
, especially when it comes to investing in education, in training. they like obama care. they say our economy is not where it needs to be, but we are going to stick with the president to move forward because we like his thinking. interestingly, the man you saw on the piece, kevin harbor, told me wish there was a viable third party candidate because i'm not really sold on either of these guys. >> wow. that's very telling. poppy, thank you. appreciate it. >> yeah. >>> today both candidates are offering their vision for america. this is an exclusive opinion article for cnn.com on our worldwide website. president obama who just spoke in ohio a short while ago right on cnn.com today saying i believe america's prosperity was built on the strength of our middle class. we don't succeed when a few of the top do well while everyone else struggles to get by. we're better off when everyone gets a fair shot. everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules. the man who wants his job, of course, former massachusetts governor, mitt romney, spoke in wisconsin. that was just a short time a
. it was not mentioned. and it was not in our history, any idea why that could be? >> he was educated in australia and there was quite a comprehensive education on the topic of the american revolution and the american civil war but almost nothing whatsoever on the war of 1812 and why might that be? well, the british i think did not tend to regard the american war of 1812 as a particularly significant event at all. for the british it, this was just one small, kind of sideshow in the midst of a global war with napoleon. so for them the war of 1812 is the one happening on the european continent and around the globe. not the one happening in north america. that might have something to do with what is taught in australia. the fact of the matter it was not taught very much here either i think for some of the reasons that i outlined. if you look at this in military and diplomatic terms it didn't change very much for the united states. but i think it is worth taking a new look at it from a cultural perspective and thinking about what it means to declare war in a democracy and how you use popular culture t
